On Sunday I spotted a very large lady pheasant at the bottom of the garden. I put out some seed down there for her and when she'd finished eating she came up towards the house, hopped onto the wall and disappeared into the woods. Next day there was a huge cock pheasant down there filling up on seed. He then made his way up towards the house, hopped onto the wall and disappeared into the woods at exactly the same spot where Mrs pheasant did the day before. I think she must have gone home and told him where they could get something to eat. Anyway they have both been back a couple of times a day each since then. I hope they stay

My mother lives in southern Spain and she's asked me what she should do with her morning glory now that it has finished flowering.. It sounds like it's gone a bit mad.

Roses are still in bud and blooming in the garden. I picked these this morning to save then from being blown to bits.


Spring bulbs sprout up

The green of Muscari always comes up at this time and is a right nuisance. I cleared a load out in the summer but its up again all over the rose bed. At least it helps keep the weeds at bay

Do we just pull them up when they finish?

I can concur that it is enormously attractive to dogs, mine can't be affectionate enough if I'm trying to use it in the garden, also I had newly planted roses dug up by Monsieur Reynard one time.  No harm done though
